Honda City is a sedan that keeps reinventing itself year after year with newly added features and a premium look and feel. We take it to the road and give you some insights into its upgraded features and performance.
The All-New City is smartly styled with a bolder look than before. The wide, upper-grill in the front presents the signature Honda Solid Wing Face, and elevates the car to a position of prominence. This bold front is taken to the next level with the integration of Full LED Headlamps (with 9 LED array inline shell, integrated LED DRL, L-Shaped LED Turn Indicator), a first in the segment. In the rear of the All-New City, Z-shaped 3D Wrap Around LED Tail Lamps with Uniform Edge Light and LED Side Marker Lights continue to highlight the sleeker design of the car.
The new Honda City is spacious and comes with better technological prowess. It offers comfort, a clear vision while driving, with a balance of openness and security. This is the ‘SO-KAI’ or ‘Invigorating’ cockpit design in the All-New City. Another theme, the ‘Dynamic View’ concept, has structured the design of the instrumental panel for the driver to use easily. The leather seats and hand-crafted tailoring adds to the premium feel.
The interiors are based on Honda’s ‘Man Maximum, Machine Minimum’ philosophy. Hence, a thoughtfully created interior space with ample legroom and an ergonomically designed cockpit come together beautifully to give you a sublime riding experience. The cabin trays and pockets are placed within an easy-to-reach distance of all passengers, in the front as well as in the rear of the vehicle.
Inside the All-New City, we are greeted by an ergonomically designed, and thoughtfully laid-out instrument panel. This sports the advanced touchscreen which connects with Android and iOS++, opening new ways to stay social and digital on the drive. With the Next Gen Honda Connect, an exciting information technology platform with 32 ingenious features provides a sense of safety, security and convenience.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
The power of Honda is derived from its expertly crafted, technologically advanced, innovative powertrain. The Earth Dreams Technology greatly enhances both driving performance and fuel efficiency, the All-New City’s engine features High Accuracy Valve Technology, for better combustion with reduced friction and lower emissions. Since power from the engine is continuously fed to the car tyres, CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission makes the ride smoother.
The All-New City was fun to drive and provided a more stable driving than its predecessor. We liked the safety features and in particular the camera system that supplements side mirrors and uses a screen inside the vehicle for the driver to keep aware of the surroundings. We mainly drove it around Dubai and found it easy to handle, easy to park and enjoyed the comfort of the more enhanced cabin in this new generation Honda City.
